The Wedding: Ring them bells and don't get the ring wrong.

The big day arrived- and my mother is now Mrs Madre, an honest woman, and all that jazz! I still can't quite believe it. 

The service was held in Anne of Cleeves' House, in Lewes. It was a gorgeous ceremony, the house was all decked out in fairy lights and sprigs of leaves and flowers. Many tears were shed (good tears of course).

Madre in her bridal best.

The moment Madre realised she was actually getting married!
(not sure what part the banana played in this revelation?)
Testing the shoes.

Finally some bubbly!

Three Little Maids from school are we... (sort of ish)

Ma and I

My beautiful parents looking all in love with each other, bless 'em.

I love that last one- mum totally looks like the cat that got the cream :)

Collette and I dancing like little mentalists. If you hadn't already guessed, it was to Beyonce's SIngle Ladies (should've put a ring on it). 

There are heaps more photos that other people took. Sadly I got rather carried away with the free booze and forgot about my camera. Ill pop a few more varied ones up when I get hold of other peoples photogs!

oh nearly forgot, outfit:

Dress, Asos, £40
Tights, Primark, £1.50
Shoes, Primark, £14

regardez vous Phee's handy work, with these cute paper flowers. they are from this little fabric shop in the Laines, in Brighton. £1.50 a bunch, and you get about 12 in a bunch. 

Let me leave you with this rather manic looking one of me, Im guessing this was a few glasses of the fizzy stuff down the line?!...
